Headword: Πειθοῖ
Adler number: pi,1443
Translated headword: to persuasion, to persuasiveness
Vetting Status: high
"Having been both subjected to persuasion and out-generalled by the trickery of the speeches, they conceded to him that the stream might be crossed."[1]
"But Ambrosius having been trained both in Hellenic persuasion and in literary art [...]."[2]
Greek Original:
Πειθοῖ: πειθοῖ τε ὑπαχθέντες καὶ τῷ δολερῷ τῶν ῥημάτων καταστρατηγηθέντες συνεχώρησάν οἱ περαιωθῆναι τὸν ῥοῦν. ἀλλὰ καὶ πειθοῖ τῇ Ἑλληνικῇ καὶ μούσῃ γεγυμνασμένος ὁ Ἀμβρόσιος.
The headword, presumably extracted from the first quotation given (and also illustrated by the second one), is dative singular of the feminine noun πειθώ (pi 1441).
[1] Quotation (transmitted, in Adler's view, via the Excerpta Constantini Porphyrogeniti) unidentifiable.
[2] (Addendum lacking, Adler reports, in mss FV.) Again, the quotation -- in which Bernhardy thought 'Hellenic' should go with 'literary art' -- is unidentifiable, though Adler's attribution of it to Symeon Metaphrastes is a reasonable conjecture. In any event this individual could be the best-known bearer of the name Ambrosius: St Ambrose (c.337-397), bishop of Milan; or it might be the friend of Origen, Ambrose of Alexandria, mentioned at omega 182 and omega 183.
